Our opinion on the Figuerolles Calanque

Adresse of the Figuerolles Calanque : Av Figuerolles, 13600 La Ciotat

Fiquerolles Calanque in La Ciotat is part of the Calanques National Park. It is therefore the first calanque in the region of Marseille. It is easily accessible by stairs located less than five minutes from the parking lot. The beach on this calanque is made up of stones and offers a nice depth of water. The view of Lion rock and the neighboring rocks is quite impressive. It is to us the most beautiful beach in La Ciotat, thanks to its surroundings. It is also a great spot to practice scuba diving.

To get here from the harbor of La Ciotat, follow directions for Mugel Park, then take the avenue de Figuerolles. You'll find a little parking lot across from the stairs to the calanque. You can also park in the lot for Mugel Park (about 800 meters from avenue des Calanques).
